4.960 KM In 19 days Across Scandinavia.
The Dalarna region, which has a long cultural tradition in Sweden, and Lapland, which stretches over three countries, are certainly worthy of special mention. Here you will inevitably come into contact with the natives, the seeds. The midnight sun awaits you around the summer solstice. Along the Norwegian coasts you experience the Lofoten and many, many (really many) fjords. The last highlight is the ferry trip from Bergen to Hirtshals including overnight stay.
Day 1: Arrival Hirtshals (Denmark)
Own journey to Hirtshals. Parking for car and motorcycle trailer (extra charge).
Day 2: Hirtshals - Oslo 225 km
Early breakfast and ride to the port of Hirtshals, the most important ferry port on the North Sea coast. At 9 am the ferry leaves Denmark for Langesund on the Oslofjord (journey time approx. 4.5 h). After your arrival a good 2 hours on the bike await you on your way to the hotel in the west of Oslo. If you are in the mood for a sightseeing tour - the bus only takes 15 minutes to get to the city centre.
Day 3: Oslo - Falun 400 km
Your journey to Falun begins with a ride through Oslo. The way to the Swedish border takes you along the shore of Mjøsa, an extensive inland lake. The border region is rich in wooded sections and leads via small and partly winding roads into Sweden and the province of Dalarna. Hardly any landscape embodies the Swedish idyll any more: the red house on the shore is no rarity here. Above all, the historic copper town of Falun is also known beyond Swedish borders for its red wooden houses.
Day 4: Falun - Sundsvall 295 km
Through the Hälsingland region, famous in Sweden for folk dancing, you ride up to Sundsvall, the town between 2 mountains, near the Baltic Sea. The hostel for the night is located in an old wood and sawmill town.
Day 5: Sundsvall - Skellefteå 395 km
The journey continues along the rocky coast of the Baltic Sea, the Swedes call the coast "Höga Kusten". Beyond the main road are pearls such as Nordingrå, an old fishing village on the coast. Umeå, the second largest town in Sweden, is situated at the mouth of a river. Built with wide streets and many trees, it is also called the "City of Birches". Day's destination is Skellefteå. Built in 1845, Skellefteå is one of the youngest towns in Sweden.
Day 6: Skellefteå - Rovaniemi 375 km
Luleå's old centre is called Gammelstaden. Land elevations necessitated a shift towards the Baltic Sea. Here in the old town you will find an impressive old church settlement. In Haparanda/Tornio you cross the Finnish border at the Tornefluss. Rovaniemi is the capital of Finnish Lapland. A very successful arctic museum, a beautiful orthodox church and many public buildings by the Finnish star architect Alvor Alto you can admire here. You'll spend the night in Rovaniemi on the Arctic Circle.
Day 7: Rovaniemi - Inari 310 km
Lapland's vast landscape with wide moors, forests and lakes is impressive. Extensive national parks are located here. The Sami part of Lapland begins behind the small town of Sodankylä. Attention: Here reindeer can meet you on the street! Ivalo is the centre of the region around the large lake Inarisee. Your destination is the town of Inari further northwest. The museum and event centre "Siida" in Inari is a good starting point to get to know and understand Sami life.
Day 8: Inari - Honningsvåg 370 km
You will notice that Lapland is very sparsely populated when you ride the route to Karasjok in Norway. Here you will meet the mighty river valley of the Tana River. The Norwegian Sami have their modern parliament here, which is also open to the public. In Lakselv at the wide Porsangerfjord you will see the northern sea for the first time. At the west shore you pass the national park in Stabbursdalen. Destination and place of overnight stay is Honningsvåg directly before North Cape.
Day 9: North Cape and surroundings
The almost 40 km to the North Cape Rock can be mastered quickly. North Cape has been a popular tourist destination for about 200 years. The so-called North Cape Hall, an adventure centre, is carved into the rocks above the North Sea. A second destination is Skarvåg and the bird safari to the upstream bird cliffs. The rugged North Sea nature is very impressive.
Day 10: Honningsvåg - Lyngseidet 425 km
You're moving south again. The route leads over the mountains from Sennalandet to Alta. The field with rock drawings from prehistoric times is fascinating. The next mountain passage offers a wonderful view of the fjord and the Øksfjord glacier. From Olderdalen you take the ferry across the Lyngenfjord to Lyngseidet (approx. 40 min), the destination of the day.
Day 11: Lyngseidet - Harstad 290 km
The Lyngenfjord goes deep inland and is an impressive sight with the high steep mountains on the shore of the fjord. A similarly spectacular picture offers ridges with many islands and high mountains. From Sørrolsnes by ferry (30 min) to Stangsnes. Harstad in South Troms is the destination of the day. Tickets for the ferry can be purchased on site.

Day 13: Sørfjordmo - Brønnøysund 410 km
On Saltfjellet you cross the Arctic Circle again and behind Mo the path leads you back to the mountainous coast. Many fjords today require two ferry trips: from Tjøtta to Forvik it takes about 45 minutes, from Anndalsvåg to Horn it takes about 20 minutes.
Day 14: Brønnøysund - Trondheim 375 km
From the coast you ride through the mainly agriculturally used areas from Tröndelag to the old capital Trondheim. A walk to the magnificent cathedral through the alleys of the over 1,000 year old city is almost a must. Today there is a ferry crossing: from Vennesund to Holm in 20 minutes.
Day 15: Trondheim - Molde 250 km
The trip takes you to the fjord region. (Ferry crossing Halsa - Kanestraum, approx. 20 min, tickets to buy locally) The west of Norway is rugged by many fjords. Molde is located on the north side of the wide Romsdalsfjord.
